"Mr. Sun" by Jude Johnstone (Jazz Artist from California(CA))

"Mr. Sun" by Jude Johnstone is a easy listening/jazzy album with elements of brass instrumentation, soft drum brushes, and piano and bass in the mix. Johnstone has strong, yet touching, vocals while she sings with a variety of vocal ranges. The harmonies are sung with the same passion-filled emotions as the lead vocals. The title track, "Mr. Sun," has a cheerful Latin rhythm that makes you feel happy, with lyrics that compliment the rest of the instruments. "Don't Tell Me That It's Over" captures the feel of a nice, flowing jazz/blues song, with a soulful saxophone solo to top it off. "So Bad" is a relaxing, Jack Johnson-like track that exhibits Johnstone's vocal range. The creativity in the infusing brass instruments within songs adds texture to the band's sound, and the piano enriches the sense of a jazzy/blues style. Fans of easy listening/jazz music should definitely pick up "Mr. Sun."
